On Saturday 17 March Year 11 students travelled to London as part of their Religious Studies course to visit the Buddhapadipa Temple in Wimbledon. The visit gave students the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of Buddhism through a tour of the temple and observing how Buddhist monks live, explore Buddhist teachings and ethics and practice meditation. It is an invaluable insight into Buddhism as a living religion in an urban setting and will help students’ understanding go beyond the textbook. Students were brilliant of course – although a bit cold in the snow!
